After two straight wins over top ten foes things get even tougher for the Northern Iowa Panthers as they get set to visit second ranked North Dakota State. The Panthers are part of a three-way tie for second and sit a game behind the unbeaten Bison. UNI coach Mark Farley.
A win would give the Panthers a share of the Valley lead.
